Mohammed's Night Journey

Mohammed is clearly identified by the flame halo and thin veil through which his features can be seen. Punjab, 1686; British Library. Gabriel and other angels accompany the Prophet as he ascends to Heaven from the Temple Mound in Jerusalem - later the Al-Aqsa Mosque was built on the spot. It is one of the oldest and most beautiful mosques in the world.
